City of York Local Plan

Work is currently underway on preparing a new Local Plan for the City of York. The Local Plan is a citywide plan which will help shape future development in York up to 2030 and beyond. It sets out the opportunities and policies on what will or will not be permitted and where, including new homes and businesses.


The publication draft Local Plan was approved to go out for consultation by Cabinet on 25 September.

A motion was submitted by Councillor Reid at Full Council on 9 October which set out that the planned consultation on the current proposals should be halted whilst further work is undertaken. Further information on the motion is available under point 12B (iii).

Members of Full Council agreed this motion. Consequently the planned Local Plan Publication consultation has been halted and work is underway to comply with the resolution.

The Local Plan Publication Draft and Proposals Map were considered by the Local Plan Working Group on 22 September 2014. Further information, including the draft plan and proposal map are available.
